One of our clients Miss G came to us for advice about making an industrial deafness claim. As a bar tender in a large nightclub in the city Miss G was subjected to a constant loud noise every time she worked. Whenever Miss G left the club her ears were ringing and she struggled to hear. We were able to make a claim for Miss G and secure her a total of £7430.00 in industrial deafness compensation.
One of the laws that will apply to many employers is the control of noise in the workplace regulations that were introduced in 2005 to replace the noise at work regulations that were implemented in 1989. Your employer under the control of noise at work act 2005 must ensure that provisions are made for any employees who work in an area of their business where the noise emissions exceed the maximum exposure limits. These provisions include making sure that an adequate level of ear protection is provided along with comprehensive training about how to use the equipment and what procedures are in place for reporting faulty equipment and acquiring new ear defenders.
